Calendar Policies

The Calendar of Events is a central source for event information at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The site is managed by UNLV Web & Digital Strategy.

Content Policies

Events appropriate for listing on the calendar include lectures, performances, academic events, cultural activities, major deadlines, and athletic events.

To be included in the calendar, events must take place on one of the UNLV campuses or be sponsored by a UNLV entity, such as a university department or official student organization.

Event listings will not to be published if the content:

  • is an ongoing course, competition, sweepstake or internal staff meeting.
  • is not consistent with existing university policies (e.g., political and religious policy).
  • is of a purely personal nature to an individual submitter.
  • is not related to UNLV.
  • is a job listing.
  • is a solicitation.
  • is only sharing a video, link, or attached file, with no actual event associated with it.

All entries will be reviewed by a calendar editor and are subject to edits and changes. You will be contacted if your submission is rejected or requires additional information.


Entries and updates generally will be posted to the calendar within three working days after submission. You may submit your event as soon as your details are confirmed.

Submission Changes

To cancel an event or change information, use the Change My Entry form.


It is required that events have a small description explaining what the event is about for inquiring visitors. Do not copy and paste the event title into the description. Submissions with no event description or "TBD" will be denied. In order to be approved, it must have an accurate description of the event so visitors are informed. If you have questions, contact the calendar editor.
